former presidential candidate john kerry. he, of course, is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate the president's national security adviser tom domilan and u.s. am bass kor susan rice who may some controversial to republicans because she was the obama's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence information about benghazi attack. treasury, the top candidate to replace geithner is jack lew who has served as the president's budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and might look elsewhere. a bunch of names have bethrown there. mark warner, erkine bowles. at the pentagon, leon panetta's departure probably won't after until after spring. but some think that michelle will be the first ever woman to head the pentagon. and then in the senate, rhode island senator jack reed, and john kerry, the man who talked bob gates into staying at defense in the beginning of the president's first term. and then there's john kerry and some thought there if rice gets stayed, they still would want to put kerry in the cabinet somewhere.
this problem. >> i want to ask you about susan rice or john kerry for secretary of state. do you have a preference? do you think one would be an easier confirmation than the other? >> i think they both have incredible depth of knowledge and capability in that position and i'm waiting to hear what the president has to say to us. >> you don't believe there is a confirmation issue with susan ri rice? >> i think susan rice has done an incredible job for our country. she has a right if she is nominated to come before the senate and make her case, and i hope that no one draws lines in the sand until she has that opportunity if she's nominated. >> all right. senator patty murray, who is chairwoman of the dnc. i understand you don't want to do that job again. >> i have other responsibilities, yes. >> we will wait to see who comes next. senator murray, thanks for coming on this morning. >> thank you. >>> and we have some breaking news that we let you know of during the bottom banner, but house minority leader nancy pelosi is once again going to run for leader. again the official announcement i
the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind o
play a fun game. susan rice or john kerry who do you think? >> i would say kerry. >> eliot: why because of susan rice and the benghazi? >> no. because with you know people who know their way around the hill. there is a domestic component to driving foreign policy that can't be overlooked. >> eliot: tina? >> his speech at the convention was an audition piece. >> eliot: not every audition works. >> yes. that was a kerry no one saw before. i was -- in the stadium. people were kind of -- sighed when he got up there. he knocked it out of park. >> eliot: people remembered that. >> he was the surprise sleeper speaker. >> eliot: treasury, tim geithner leaving. does he take somebody from wall street? >> undoubtedly. >> eliot: you think he does? >> absolutely. >> eliot: come on! so many people understand banking finance better than those guys. >> yes. ralph nader. >> eliot: robert rice. i would put him in any cabinet position. host of new york 1 errol louis and editor tina but dupuy. our special election nig
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
wanted to tell you earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my rent. i work so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislature then i served with. he's been out front on issues dealing with climate change, and for structure, development and many other things. i don't know any conversations at the president or anyone in the white house has had within any conversation i've had with john kerry. he does not bring up has been secretary of anything. i'll do everything i can to help him if he is chosen. we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think i've heard he you how i feel about scott brown. [inaudible] what do you think his priority should be coming out? >> the president's priorities as he is outlined this campaign, to protect the mail class and small business. we are one vote away from that accomplishment -- been accomplished. all we have to decide the house of representatives web are built. they should do this to help the
john kerry or al gore did. president obama won in some key swing states with predominantly white voters. many of them live in the suburbs or rural areas. take iowa, where white voters made up 93% of the electorate. more than half of those voters, 51%, backed president obama to 47% for romney. it was the same breakdown in new hampshire where white voters were also 93% of the electorate and 51% voted for president obama. there's also the fact that many new hampshire voters live in rural areas, yet president obama won those rural voters by 16 points, 57-41%. as all the numbers suggest, it's not quite as simple as congressman ryan suggests. urban voters can't take all the credit for the president's win. joining me now is cnn contributor david frum who has a lot to say about this. his new ebook is "why romney lost." he joins me along with paul begala and alex castellano. liberals have been critical of ryan's comments about urban areas. what do you think of it? >> i don't want to ascribe any sort of dog whistle to it. let's just actually use the language he did, which is geographic. he's just
. >> is this a fight the white house wants to have, major? is john kerry looking like the better candidate now? >> well, that's for the administration to decide and they're getting early signals from republicans that if the president wants to go down this road and nominate ambassador rice, that it's going to be a fight and it's going to be game on and it will take on a very partisan and divided tone, very rapidly, whether the administration wants to do that and make a symbol not only of susan rice or go with someone far more easily confirmable like senator kerry might be a choice the administration wants to make but all indications is they're ready for a fight and up to the president to decide whether he wants to have it. >> thanks to see both of you. you can watch the president's news conference live at 1:30 eastern time here. in the meantime, congresswoman nancy pelosi is holding a news conference saying she wants to remain democratic leader in the house and aides said she made the announcement just a short time ago while talking with her caucus. let's listen.

for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
with an incumbent. he went after john kerry's war record. >> what did president bush do? he claimed a mandate he didn't have on iraq and it sank his presidency. sorry to interrupt. >> is there a number to sum up the election? 47%. a moment to sum up the obama campaign, it was the first debate. these were self-inflicted wounds that these candidates may to themselves. much influence do you think they had? >> i think the 47% was a pretty big deal. democrats have been laying the groundwork with these attack ads portraying romney as the guy who cared about the middle class and was interested in protecting rich people like himself. romney sort of betrayed himself. the democrats seized on that. it happened at a time when romney's candidacy was floundering. the first debate, he was able to put that 47% behind him, but the damage was done. >> he put that behind him in his first debate. he spent all that money and allow time characterizing romney as an uncaring monster. all the sudden he looked reasonable. he looked like somebody who could be president. the president did not bring his a game. part of it w
gum. get rid of it. i was going to tell you earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my friend. i work so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him. and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislator that i served with. he's been wait out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development and many other things. so i don't know any ks that the president or anyone in the white house has had with him and any conversation i've had with john kerry, he does not bring up his being secretary of anything. but i'll do everything to help him if he's chosen. and we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think are his priorities should be coming out of today's press conference? >> the president's priorities are what he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of
? >> state is tough for me. i have a hard time seeing john kerry get the job he wants and replacing hillary clinton because that would open up a senate seat and presumably scott brown of massachusetts would slide in. i think the interesting one is treasury. jack lew obviously is a good candidate. one thing bouncing around the sphere is mitt romney who has experience there. but, you know, i think it's going to be hard to -- hard to see where the chips fall. obviously you want someone with a bit of outreach to wall street, but, you know, someone like a tony james, a private equity executive who is tied with the democrat, it's hard to see after this race and mitt romney having been the opponent, a guy like that fitting in. certainly somebody -- >> you need to head it where do you go in the blogosphere, i think. be careful. >> okay. okay. yeah. well, i'm not -- i'm not predicting romney but he's one of the most interesting names out there. but certainly somebody -- another serious name who could deal with fiscal cliff. >> that would be a great man. >> the state thing is interesting because as j
